I own this device for over a month and I have to say it's perfect for its price. I think it's the best cheap item that I have owned in my life.
Their first look sounds like was written by some kid who is really enjoying his note 5 and nothing else. Honestly, wtf?! This device is 150-200$ depending on storage, 5 times less.
- Really?! I love it actually. You have all in one place, EVERYTHING. Calendar, calculator, remote control, all can be opened from there.
- Again, really?! You guys were impartial to reviews before. Now you're advising people to stay away?! That sucks. And it's a nice looking UI that's in the beginning, it's not mature all the way.
- Again, please, do your homework. There are updates for bug fixes every week, released as Experimental. Every month they are releasing a Stable version with improvements. Rumors say that it will get 6.0 in April.
- This statement made me really angry and I felt like you guys are idiots. Please do compare this phone with any other android on the market now and see the difference in speed and everything else. I am sure that it will not be as to say "satisfactory". Call it "impressive for it's price range" because at this price you get the 1.3ghz octacore in other handsets, or SD615.
- Man, this was my favorite statement. Honestly I have no idea how you guys are advising people to "avoid". The camera is pretty good I can say, I'm not sure what you guys were expecting, maybe DSLR quality, but I can assure you that it takes good pictures.
All in all: in Gsmarena a lot of changes had been done in the past years, that's true, a lot of people were involved and heads were changed maybe, but honestly, you are starting to become biased. Still I can't figure out why Letv was neglect for so long.
Before this handset I had Xperia S, wanted to buy Z5 but the price was too high. My wife has Z2 so I know the quality of Sony, and I was "Sony all the way", but I wanted to wait a little and see what's coming next year, as SD810 was not the best option for me. Buying this Letv 1s as intermediate phone made me realize that there are other brands that produce cheaper phones and are as good as flagships. Knowing that I'm on dangerous turf, I chose one of the cheapest options from Letv because I didn't know anything about quality of these handsets. Paid 213$ from Aliexpress with 2 glass protectors, silicon case and shipping. Still I'm amazed by the looks, built quality and UI every day. Overall it's a great smartphone and I'm thinking that maybe the next handset to be Letv as well, depending upon price, specs and reviews.
And stop treating a sub 200$ phone like a flagship because it ain't.

Go to your Dial and type this code. *#*#3646633#*#* to get Engineering mode.
To switch off this dynamic brightness, search for "AAL" option for display, and switch off, Reboot your device and no more auto dim/brightness issue.

Mahender, 13 Feb 2016Go On Settings>Permissions>manage auto launch, turn on app(like. whatsApp or fb)Yes, that is solution. Almost all Chinese phones have same restrictions on.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2016xiaomi is more reliable than this unknown crap Is it!? Would you like to buy my Mi4i in half of its price, so you can see for yourself how reliable Xiaomi is.
And enjoy with talks with their "costumer support", or what ever the do call that VR program that answers to our emails.
Zte nobia z9 mini is best camera phone under sub $200. For me camera is usable than fingerprint scanner in a phone. If someone having dslr than also good camera in a phn is necessary now a social media days.
Midhu, 13 Feb 2016I am disconnecting from wifi oftenly please give me a solution Hey midhu I too had that issue, but I figured it out. It's the battery saving assistant button... Whenever you enable it or disable it, WiFi turns on, u should turn it off whenever u enable or disable battery saver mode.. When the phone is in normal performance mode there is no issue.. You can turn it on or off in the right corner of the notification panel... Or else go to settings-battery- Battery assistant ..... That's it
You can buy this phone even for 150 $, and still complains ? An unbrickable phone with great specs. And you call this a review ? What about audio quality (headphones) ? iPhone 3s takes better picures ? Come on ! Did i mentioned that its just 150$ ? :)

Bhupi, 13 Feb 2016Thanks gsm for timely review of this not so impressive 'by the end of the day' useless spec ri... moreBuddy, I got the phone 2 days back and yes, some of the things you said are very true, like bad UI and battery back up. The quick charge more than makes up for it. UI will always become better and feature rich as time passes. Look at MIUI as example. Don't always go on reviews. They are standardized. They don't use different camera apps and music apps. It is android, there are different apps because they add to your experience. I don't know about you but I always like to edit my photos on a PC via lightroom and I must say, the camera is VERY good. Its just the software that's buggy. Same goes for Music.
You should always base your opinions after actually using the phone. I had the same views as you, but everything disappeared after I used the phone. It really is good and I have used the Xiaomi Mi3 as my daily driver for over a year. If you canceled the order then you got trolled.
See this hands-on for example. He has gotten the specs wrong, 8 MP front instead of 5 MP, Android 5.1.1 instead of 5.0.2. You can turn off the dynamic contrast thingy too. He doesn't even know what he is talking about. There are a lot of people like this.

Thanks gsm for timely review of this not so impressive 'by the end of the day' useless spec rich phone which lacks quality Camera, battery heating and backup issues, and as you said no great UI which should be fairly universal and useful to all users than simply trying to be unique going custom ways! The policy of scrupless online sellers always pushes the least desirable colors and specs first. So is in this case as they have pushed Gold one in first two sales. I am gonna cancel my order which is on way by getting truer picture of the hoopla raised by full sized news paper ads about it. Let me tell you folks, its not the bombastic specs which make a masterpiece, it is daily use Niceties like Great camera, music, messaging, video making etc coupled with piece of mind things like dependable battery life(non heating of course unless you like to burn fingers on daily basis) which generate a feeling of a day well spent! I hope prospective users are wise enough to take their own call and not be swayed by online swindle sellers and by the tell me one single great phone sold through flash sales which has held its charm after one month??
